Helping Employers Make Reliable, Fact-Based Return-to-Work Decisions
Fitness for Duty (FFD) evaluations help employers make decisions regarding accommodations, work assignments, location placement, and the appropriateness of a particular position for an employee.
Ensure Safe Performance of Essential Job Functions
FFD evaluations are a medical or psychological examination in which a licensed physician seeks information about an employee’s physical or mental condition and health as it related to the scope of their work duties.
To require these exams, an employer must have a reasonable belief based on objective evidence—not assumptions or stereotypes—that an employee's ability to perform essential job functions will be impaired by a medical condition or the employee will pose a direct threat due to a medical condition.
Promoting Health & Well-Being of Employees
Employers rely on the results of a FFD evaluation to make decisions regarding accommodations, work assignments, location placement, and the appropriateness of a particular position for an employee. FFDs promote the health and well-being of individual employees while ensuring employee productivity and a safe working environment for employees, clients and the public.
